FARMERVILLE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Union Parish sheriff's deputies and narcotics deputies had a busy weekend with a number of drug-related arrests.

Austin J. Willingham, 24, of 972 Walnut Lane, Downsville, was arrested Saturday on four drug-related charges. He was booked into the parish detention center for simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling, possession of a legend drug, possession of a Schedule IV drug and possession of a Schedule II drug.

Willingham is accused of breaking into a friend's house and taking prescription drugs identified as Oxycodone, morphine, Adderall, Klonopin and Lorazepam that the victim said belonged to her. He also possessed the legend drug Cyclobenzaprine that did not belong to the victim.

Deputies were told by Willingham that he had unlocked the victim's back door while visiting. When she left the resident, he admitted that he returned to the residence and took the prescription drugs.

His bond was set at $17,400.

Ladarius D. Davis, 27, of 1101 Cedar St., Farmerville, was arrested Friday after a traffic stop. He was booked for possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving under suspension, running a stop sign and fugitive from justice from Sterlington for a traffic violation.

No bond information was available.

Arrested on his third offense possession of marijuana was Curtis J. Lloyd, 31, of 601 Hickory St., No. 30, Farmerville.

A state Probation and Parole agent informed sheriff's deputies that while he was performing a home inspection on a probationer that he had found a marijuana cigarette in a bedroom shared by Lloyd and the probationer.

Lloyd admitted to both officers that the marijuana belonged to him. His bond was set at $16,000.

Booked Sunday into the detention center was Mark Lee Hayes, 20, of Bernice, on charges that he failed to appear in court for contribulting to the delinquency on a juvenile, possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana-second offense.

He was also arrested on a new charge of resisting an officer because he gave officers a fake name. His total bond was set at $11,500. Deputies said Hayes told them he gave them a false name because he didn't want to leave his newborn baby.

Crystal G. Taylor, 32, of 347 John Taylor Rd., Downsville, is charged with possession of methamphetamines and drug paraphernalia.

On March 11 agents with the department's Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs received information of drug activity on John Taylor Road. They gained verbal permission from Richard Frith of the same address to search the house.

That day Frith was charged with possession of meth, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Taylor, who is Frith's girlfriend, was interviewed later and charged, Sheriff Dusty Gates said.

BNDD agents made two other arrests on Friday including Samantha L. Satterwhite, 39, 332 Salen Church Rd., Farmerville, for possession of meth and drug paraphernalia. BNDD and agents from the state Probation and Parole participated in the arrest.

Gates said agents recovered a small plastic bag of suspected meth, numerous hypodermic syringes, (two of which contained suspected meth) and other drug paraphernalia.

BNDD and Probation and Parole agents also arrested Roneisha E. Coulbertson, 24, of 803 Martin Luther King Drive, Farmerville for possession of cocaine and paraphernalia.

A search of her house turned up a small plastic bag of suspected powder cocaine, agents reported.

Patrol officers arrested two Farmerville resident Monday for possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana in the presence of a juvenile. They are identified as Cornelious L. Wallace, 29, of 604 Hickory St., No. 4, and Asontae J. Pellerin, 25, of 605 E. Jackson St.
